One of our gifts at our wedding, 52 years ago, was a guest book. It’s our most treasured book! It was given to us by a treasured teacher, Miss Beth McDonald. She was one of my teachers at Wessington Springs College and again at Spring Arbor College.
We began using our guest book immediately after setting up house keeping in our first home. We’ve been keeping a guest book ever since. The first folks to sign our guest book are gone now. Uncle Harry, Aunt Lizzy, Mom Archer… What a wonderful sight to see their own signatures.
We’ve had children, family, friends, neighbors, students, International friends, missionaries, bishops, pastors, oh, who have I forgotten! We love to look through all our guest books. They bring back such wonderful memories. There are a few, like three or four, times when we’ve forgotten to ask friends to sign. We feel so badly about those and hope those folks will come again so we can get their names in our book!
We’re on book number three or four. We only ask folks to sign once. Is your name in our guest book?
